Finding the Trailhead: In Dundee, turn onto Cameron Mountain Road. Drive 2.1 km and turn left. Drive 800 m to a Y intersection. Keep to the right. Drive on for 1.6 km and keep right at another Y intersection. Continue for 1 km to another Y intersection and veer right. Continue to the end of the road and park.

Trailhead: 45º41’35.1”N, 60º59’59.4”W     Waterfall: 45º41’36.4”N, 60º59’41.8”W

The Hike: From where you parked at the end of the logging road, spot and follow the ATV path heading east. As there is more than one ATV path, make sure to upload the way point of the fall in the GPS to help your navigation and increase your likelihood of finding the trail. The ATV path can be very muddy at times, and it may be necessary to take small detours in order to avoid some of those deep, sneaker-sucking mud holes. After about 10 minutes or so of hiking, a faint spur trail leads to the base of the fall. Upon reaching the floor of the ravine, the whole waterfall is right in front of you. In times of high water, the fall might actually take two different channels, but in summertime only the channel to the right is likely to be flowing.
